Small correction. Plain tank are a few hundred, toolbox tanks start about 5 or $600. Not as cheap but still a bargan compared to a kit.
I've already thought of this and it sucks, but I ride my bike most of the time unless I need my truck or the weather "REALLY" sucks. So in my case it will spend a lot of time just storing my gas for me in a legal, and safe (my truck gets parked far enough from my house) way.You will be hauling around a lot more weight every mile that you go. Mileage per gallon will suffer.
I have thought of that and I'm going to look into prices, but do you have a wrough idea what it would cost for say a 58"x18"x16"?Most welding shops should be able to make you what you want. Look at ads in ag fliers and magazines.
I agree. Maybe if OP had a 3/4 or 1 ton then may be doable. Having 50-100 gallons in you little pickup will make handling and MPG suffer quite a bit.
Gasoline weighs 6 lb per gallon, not 8. 55 gallons is 330 lbs. Quite a difference.
I think that's a bit on high side. Perhaps if the gas is in a 150lb+ tank and you count the tank...
